izzo Posted June 29, 2009 Report Share Posted June 29, 2009 7 months ago when i picked up my truck, i thought something was wrong with the wiring. Battery would die every few days, got some good help figuring that out. Turns out it was a dead cell in the battery. Its almost acting like that again. First, it would just "Click" and nothing. I would head the started click once then do nothing. Ok, jump started it, thought maybe i left something on? I did have the stereo going for half hour. That must have been it, wrong.. I drove it around for a few hours and got a good charge back on it (keep in mind im 370 miles from home with no volt meter) It will start back up a few hours later no problem. I checked every possible switch inside the cab to make sure everything was off, or unplugged. Including the dome light, Cig lighter, stereo etc. & also made sure the batter terminals were tight so everythings good there too. The next day when trying to start, it does turn over. When a battery is low it will make a click sound inside the cab somewhere. When you press the starter switch, it would turn the engine a quarter turn (so i think that means 1 full turn of the starter?) after every 1 turn of the starter i could hear it click inside the cab, then it would turn again, then i heard the click again etc etc over and over luckily it started. It died one more time after that. So, got another jump and everything seems to be fine again. I drove 6 hours straight and stopped off at Slayers country kitchen in portland, was there for an hour, come out and it happened again. Every time i hit the starter button i just heard the starter click and nothing happened. I kept hitting the button over and over, and finally it just kicked over and started up. anyone have any thoughts on whats going on with this? Just got a voltmeter in the mail thanks to mosier, installing this week Some thoughts i had, i noticed my turn signals didnt work so thought that maybe the hazard switch was not properly disengaged so it killed it Maybe the starter is going bad? maybe i should replace the wires for the battery?? :confused: Quote Link to comment
